Returning from Spring break brings new energy to some and dread for others. Escaping from busy schedules is a much welcomed change in routines and revitalizes kids and adults alike. There is no doubt that sharing family time in a relaxed environment is good for all of us.
Want to hold onto a piece of that positive energy? If you answered, “Yes,” then here is a special invitation for you and your family. Please join us to be part of our community to do good. We invite you to experience a morning of family, friendship, and fun on Sunday, April 9th at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield. Here’s your chance to keep those good feelings you have from Spring break.
What can you expect? You will experience science demonstrations, try your hand at art and music, enjoy a massage, have your photo taken, register to vote, and even take a journey through Mega Brain to see first-hand what makes you tick. Did I mention, that you will enjoy delicious food, yoga, and gifts all for free?
What’s the catch? We invite you to be part of our community to do good at the 8th annual Frank Shorter RACE4Kids’ Health 5K and Expo: Where Science, Engineering & Health Collide4Kids. This event rallies Colorado around the mental health and physical health of all kids. Colorado offers tremendous resources when kids are sick. Did you know that we can also work as a community to prevent kids from getting illnesses such as Type 2 Diabetes, obesity, and even anxiety and depression?
One way to help kids stay mentally and physically fit is exercise. Taking a walk or run as a family also builds communication and trust. So we have you covered. You can sign the entire family up to walk or run the 5K. Your kids are too young for a 5K, you say? There is the Mazzola Miracle Fun Run that is less than a mile, a Buzz for kids 3-5, and even a diaper dash for kids 2 and under with an adult. No kids? No worries. We will amaze you with rockets and even the Flight for Life helicopter that will bring out that inner kid in all of us.
On April 9th, you have the chance to be part of a community to do good at the Frank Shorter RACE4Kids’ Health and Expo sponsored by Centura Health. This event benefits the nonprofit, Healthy Learning Paths. Our mission is to spread the power of health for children. You can help.
